The National Youth Choir of Great Britain Fellowship Octet


Description:

This year’s NYCGB Fellowship Octet presents a kaleidoscope of music written or arranged for voices spanning many centuries, continents and musical genres. From sacred and secular music from Renaissance Europe to a cappella arrangements of songs from legendary groups Queen and Simon & Garkunfel, interspersed with folk songs, African chants and choral classics by Brahms, Vaughan Williams and MacMillan, the Fellows will dazzle with their vocal virtuosity and stylish singing. 

Launched in 2015, the NYCGB Fellowship Programme is a training scheme for aspiring choral musicians which develops solo and ensemble performance technique, teaching and leadership skills, and professional skills and networks. Eight Fellows aged 18-24 are selected annually from open auditions.
